But what really happened during the investigation into the murder of JonBenet Ramsey? For many years, all suspicions of the murder of the little American pointed to the members of her family, for lack of evidence exculpating them. A terrible accusation that totally destroyed these people, convinced that they had nothing to do with it and forced to defend themselves despite being plunged into terrible mourning.

However, the investigators had in their possession a more than formal clue to exculpate them, but they never used it. A new book written by former El Paso County Sheriff John W. Anderson, now an author, reveals DNA evidence was allegedly withheld as it cleared the relatives of the little girl killed in 1996. The work is particularly interested in the work of the former investigator Lou Smit, who was in charge of this burning file.

The investigation into the murder of JonBenet Ramsey is fully relaunched

“The Boulder police would have ignored during the last quarter century the DNA evidence which exonerated the Ramseys and could have made it possible to identify the killer”, writes black on white the former sheriff, who has been able to break his silence now that the investigation was closed. The author explains that the parents of little JonBenet Ramsey should not have been singled out so much by the police, who had no proof of their involvement in this terrible murder.

While a grand jury voted to indict the parents for child abuse causing death and complicity in a crime in 1998, ten years later prosecutor Mary Lacy publicly apologized to the family for having them suspected are them and JonBenet’s brother, Burke, who was 9 at the time of the murder.

The DNA report quoted by John W. Anderson in his book is said to be from Lou Smit’s personal records. It is written there that the evidence found under JonBenet’s fingernails and on his underwear did not correspond to his family members, nor to friends nor to the governess who was also suspected for a time. The investigation is therefore fully relaunched.
